    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    This is the most embarrassing I've ever seen the Bulls. It's the equivalent of the Trestman era for the Bears (the fact that Markkanen, LaVine, and Carter are actually talented in spite of the front office notwithstanding).

    The Vikings could theoretically come back to win this game, but it's basically over.

    If the Vikings lose the Bears would have to win one more game to clinch the division. The best the Vikings could do is 9-6-1, the Bears currently have 9 wins.

    Eli Manning is a borderline case, but if he makes it, it'll be BECAUSE he won those 2 Super Bowls. Then it becomes a chicken/egg argument - is he even in the discussion without those wins? Probably not.

    I don't think people who insist Khalil Mack shouldn't be used in coverage know what they're talking about 90% of the time. DEs and OLBs go into coverage sometimes, that's part of playing the position. WRs block on running plays, CBs blitz. That's like saying if you have Randy Moss he should do nothing but run verticals all game. If the offense has been doubling Mack then it means they can overload the other side where there are fewer players. Yes, sometimes this doesn't work, just like every other defensive play. Whenever I say this I always get a crowd of people getting defensive and doubling down about this, then trying to get examples. "Mack got burned because he ended up having to cover (fast receiver)." Well yeah, I mean, if Fangio knew which specific players would be running specific routes the defensive playcalling would be pretty easy.

    On one of Mitch's throws last night he thought he could hit a zone seam and his guy (I think it was Gabriel) was nowhere even close to open. When he sees that one on film he's going to facepalm, cuz it was dumb. The other two were good reads, he even had his feet set, he just sailed his throws. He hasn't been doing that since like September which makes me wonder how his shoulder is feeling. He says it's fine but NFL players lie about the pain they're feeling all the time.

    Harold Baines HOFer

    I'm not upset about this but if Baines is a HOF then Konerko should be in because of his 439 HRs.

    Washington looks like the Bears in 2014, when they quit on Trestman against the Packers and mostly embarrassed themselves for the rest of the year.

    Yeah, professional players are not gonna respond well to high school coaching tactics.

    I genuinely don't think Trump knows that countries don't actually pay tariffs.

    Yeah Rose here is trying to hand-wave over his role in how that relationship went south.

    Yeah, I feel like had Hoiberg been hired under more favorable circumstances he'd have been more of a Scott Brooks type. The front office gave him some bizarre rosters his first couple of years here and he never really got off the ground as a professional coach.

    The funny thing about all this to me is Canada and Mexico have both long been 100% open to renegotiating NAFTA. It never needed to be some acrimonious thing.

    I get that the Bulls have been bad for most of Hoiberg's time here, but I never really felt like he was the problem. This is the NBA though, the coach is usually the first one on the firing line.

    Remember when the Bears lost to the Packers and then beat the Cardinals, but didn't beat their asses, and people were freaking out about how it was a bad win? Good times.

    Return Chase Daniel to clipboard duty ASAP. He's no Caleb Hanie but he isn't good enough.

    2018 Video Game thread

    They have been saying that for like 4 years now, and we're at the beginning of the end of this console cycle. I have a PS4 but I'm glad this game wasn't a factor in that decision.

    I'm late responding to this but there's a massive difference in graphical quality if you have a 4K HDR-capable TV. If you're using it for games I'd pay the difference (Black Friday price drops notwithstanding) but if you're just using it to watch 4k movies I'd just get the S.

    Ald Burke's office raided

    So I'm at work and noticed one of the reporters reporting on this is Gregory Pratt of the tribune. Same guy who used to post here?

    The Giants are a bad team, and it's kind of a cliché to say it, but they can still beat the Bears. They probably won't, but they have some really good players, and they can. The Bears were a bad team last year and they beat the Steelers. These things happen.

    Technology catch-all thread

    I kinda want a 1080Ti, and I could get one used on Amazon for a pretty decent price but this is crypto miners trying to unload them after the crash to cut their losses, and I just don't feel like any of them should have that behavior redeemed in any way whatsoever because of what they did to the GPU market last year.

    That 2012 team was the most overrated 10-6 team of all time. "The Bears fired Lovie when he went 10-6!" his apologists love to say even to this day. They were a bunch of bumslayers , all 10 of their wins were against shitty-to-mediocre teams and every time they were challenged by another team they'd collapse in a national game.
